## How do you calculate IV push?

If you need to set this up on an IV infusion pump, use the formula, volume (mL) divided by time (min), multiplied by 60 min over 1 hour, this equals the IV flow rate in mL/hr. Using this formula, 100 mL divided by 30 min, times 60 min in 1 hr, equals 199.9, rounded to 200 mL/hr.

### How do you calculate IV bolus?

First, convert grams to milligrams: 2 g → 2000 mg. Next, determine the concentration: 2000 mg per 500 ml = (2000/500) X (mg/ml) = 4 mg/ml. Since you’re using a 60 drop set, you multiply your VTBI by the drip factor. Then divide by the concentration of 4 mg/ml.

#### How do you calculate IV medications?

A basic formula, solving for x, guides us in the setting up of an equation: D/H x Q = x, or Desired dose (amount) = ordered Dose amount/amount on Hand x Quantity.

**How many mL is an IV bolus?**

Give a fluid bolus of 500 ml of crystalloid (containing sodium in the range of 130–154 mmol/l) over less than15 minutes.

**How many mL are in a bolus?**

The term “bolus” is an accepted term in clinical nutrition practice and is used internationally. Bolus feeding is a common term used to describe tube feeding delivered in 200 – 400 mL volumes over a short period of time (not less than 10 – 15 minutes) using a 60 mL open syringe with gravity. (i.e. no plunger).

## Should you dilute IV push meds?

Truth: This is false. Ready-to-administer medications come packaged the way they do for a reason. Diluting them can reduce their efficacy and introduce the risk of medication errors and contamination of sterile I.V. medications.

### What is the drug calculation formula?

D/H x Q = x, or Desired dose (amount) = ordered Dose amount/amount on Hand x Quantity.

#### How much is 5 ml in mg?
